Shes beautiful. And all that relatively preserved under that awning.. 

Although a huge fan, I am By no means a pro with the old school Holmes units. I will take a mildly educated guess and say it is around a 500 model??... 

I think I recall them having dual winches..

Thanks for the info. I am trying to aquire this entire truck.  It is the first "new unit" ( the body that is)  that was purchased & used by the original owner of our company.  He often spoke of how he towed anything that came along & how great its recovery capabilities were...He drove it & parked it there in 1979...I remember it!!!

Even better that you know some of the back story to the unit. And it has history in the company your with.

I sincerely hope you will be able to take ownership of her. 

Please keep us updated on it. I am a total sucker for these old rigs and the history that goes along with them. 

Just Imagine if that truck could talk.... The stories it would tell !!!

Wish I could help more because that looks like the unit I had on my 59GMC. Still looking for old pictures.What may make it more identifiable is that the booms were mounted halfway up the mast.
